UPDATE 12/3/03 - Check the cargo hold for two of my blasters!

UPDATE 11/29/03 - I have completely finished the first blaster, which is a ROTJ ( even though I am an ESB Fett). When I went to get parts for the next couple, I couldnt find one of the key parts I need. The store was out of stock. Instead of doing any kind of organized "run" of blasters, I am just going to put them in the cargo hold here as soon as i finish them. It may be only one every once in awhile based on my supply of parts. I will have the first one in the cargo hold as soon as possible, more than likely later today, with pics and more info, so check there later. - END UPDATE

Hello all,

I, like many of you, am a budget fett costumer. I am trying to make the most accurate fett costume i can, while spending the least ammount of money possible. While on this quest, I have created a budget fett blaster that looks close enough to the movie version to fool 98% of people, but yet wont take a chunk out of your wallet. I have created both ESB and ROTJ versions, and will post pics in a few days. I have figured a price of $60. I am just wondering if this sounds like a fair price for a blaster I would say looks 75 to 80% accurate? I know it is hard to judge without a pic, and i will try to remedy that soon, but this is just to see if you people think it is a good price, and to guage interest, so post a reply if you may be interested. By posting this iin no way wish to dis the fine blaster kits you can buy, they are all great. I am just trying to offer a low cost solution for low budget costumers.By the way, the blasters come fully painted and weathered.
To be honest I really have no need for this blaster but at that price it sure is tempting! I think if your pictures look convincing enough you should have no probelm finding an interested crowd.

I'd be interested in seeing the pics. The other blasters I've been scoping are running in the $150-$185 range on the 'bay. While these look good, I've seen different variations of them, and not 100% convinced that I need to spend that much on them. I'd like to see the pics.

I should have pics up some time tomorrow (saturday). Also I have done some refiguring, and it looks like the price will be $60 not $55. I hope this does not upset anyone. BTW thanks for the interest guys, it is motivating me to continue this project.

Keep up the good work.

I would be interested in at least seeing the pics. I may even consider purchasing one depending on how it turns out.
